Police in Tema has began investigating the killing of the Marketing and Public Affairs Manager of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) in charge of the Tema Port, Josephine Asante.
She was stabbed to death at her residence in Tema Community 25.
The murderer or murderers had locked her inside the bedroom and threw the key onto the main compound after the act.
Her body is said to have been discovered Sunday morning by other occupants of the house after they saw the keys to the deceased’s bedroom on the compound.
Though the deceased’s laptop computer, phones, jewellery and other important accessories were exposed, the assailant did not take anything.
According to the Afienya District Police Commander, Superintendent Charles Agyei, the incident was believed to have happened at about 3 a.m, during which an unknown assailant pounced on the deceased, aged 49, who was fast asleep after returning from an end of year dinner organised by her employers, GPHA, last Saturday night.
The husband of the deceased, Kwame Asante, is reported to have travelled outside the country and is due to return today, January 14 and was, therefore, not available at the time of the incident.
